>> thank you. after months of sunshine, rain is on its way. and no one is more excited about that than this guy over here. lawrence karnow, ladies and gentlemen. >> yes. we are getting excited. this is that time of the year we start switching gears and get back into the rainy season. we have a weak system off the coastline. the core of the low is likely surface of plane take a look. nasa officials say the "curiosity" rover has made its first scoop of the planet mars surface detecting a bright object on the ground. nasa says it might be part of the rover but they won't sample or scoop anymore until they figure out what it is. the "curiosity" has already beamed back pictures of bedrock that suggest a fast-moving stream may have flowed on the planet. cool pictures nonetheless. the wind is delaying an attempt at a skydiving record this morning. >> this guy is a little crazy, huh? austrian daredevil felix baumgartner is planning to ride a 55 story helium balloon to the edge of space and then jump out from 23 miles high back to early. he expects to break the sound
barrier before he activates his parachute which is a good idea. about 5,000 feet above the new mexico desert. plans are on hold right now because of wind. he is estimated to hit speeds up to 700 miles per hour. let's check the roads. >> it's getting nasty i guess, action. we have been dealing with a couple of couple of different problems including bad traffic now near sfo. we'll get to that in just a minute. in the meantime check the bay bridge. it really changed here in the last five minutes because those metering lights have been turned on. so we are starting to see those delays behind the pay gates. it looks like in cash and fastrak lanes now so yeah you can no longer beat the rush. these delays continue to grow. right now probably about 10 minutes or so to get on the bridge. this is the area they have been watching northbound 101 again right near sfo and 380 so yeah they have been doing some overnight paving work across the stretch. it was supposed to wrap up a while ago. caltrains crews are out there
finishing up very, very shortly. in the meantime we are seeing gridlock across that stretch 12 miles per hour as you pass the airport north of sfo. elsewhere all lanes clear so much better news. we have been watching this earlier injury crash southbound 880 before 238 for a while chp was on scene with one lane blocked. again all lanes are back open so no longer any delay. the president is in town so good morning, mr. president. you can see we are dealing with some street closures still. this is south of market area so howard street shut down between fourth and fifth. fourth between folsom and mission. the president heads to sfo later on this morning. you could find rolling closures and delays before he departs at 9:30, along 101. that's a check of your "timesaver traffic." for more on your possibly rainy forecast, we'll go to lawrence. >> wouldn't that be nice with showers making a return to the bay area? point reyes, doppler radar
picking up moisture most of off to the coast. but there is a slight chance of showers throughout the day and probably the next couple of days especially out toward the coast as that low is going to swing to the south. never moving onshore but staying coastside. things a little unsettled. a few clouds in the skies now. partly cloudy in the afternoon. some mild temperatures for most of us. cool as you approach the coastline. and a slight chance of showers as you head toward the beaches, as well. the core of that low is going to stay off the coast dragging with it the showers but occasionally we may see some bands moving onshore but the whole core is going to make its way down into southern california so we are going to keep things unsettled today and tomorrow of the delays of at sfo of 70 minutes on arriving flights. partly cloudy skies this afternoon. hopefully things should clear out. around the rest of the country 81 houston, 61 denver maybe showers in chicago and new york. temperatures around the bay area in the 60s and 70s. the next couple of days we are going to keep some mild temperatures slight chance of showers coastside and another chance as we head into friday drier warmer weather expected for the weekend. back to you.
>> thank you. it's do or die tonight for the as as they try to stave off elimination against the tigers. >> they can do it. last night the mayor, mayor quan, hosting a big rally outside city hall ahead of the first post-season home game of the year. the as trailing the tigers though 2-0. best-of-five series. as host kara tsuboi outside the coliseum with more ahead of the big game. we have two words for you, kara. we believe. >> reporter: exactly, frank. you have to believe in this team. that's sort of been the mantra all season long. looking back to spring training, who would have thought this group of guys would have made it this far? except for johnny gomes who always believed in the oakland as. the rest of us are like, who is this cast of characters? we lost all our big names. can this group win 60 games, 70 games? and look what they have pulled off. it's been pretty incredible all season long. so yeah, if any team is going to come back from an 0-2
deficit in the american league division series it has to be your oakland as. >> so there is a game tonight at home. do you think that's going to give the as a home field advantage? >> reporter: you know, the way that the play-offs structure is scheduled this year with two games on the road and three games at home, it really doesn't give you that much of a home field advantage. sure, it's great to have three in a row. to start the series on the road, that's really tough. and as we saw, verlander was really difficult on saturday. three games at home with a packed coliseum everyone waving these rally towels that we got at the rally last night i think it's going to motivate these boys to play well and play to the bitter end. >> they have done it to win six or seven in a row just to make it where they were to win the division and swept the rangers at home in three straight when a lot people said you don't have a prayer. so tigers watch out because i think they feel get them tonight. >> reporter: i think you're
right. we swept the rangers, the final three games and swept the seattle mariners the three games before that. so it's very, very possible for the team to take the series and move on to the championship series but one thing i think all fans should remember is that this season has already been a dream, a miracle, incredible, call it what you will. it's already been spectacular leading to now. so -- >> we're not ready for it to end. >> reporter: no. not yet. >> we're rooting for them. thank you, kara tsuboi. how about the giants? they are in cincinnati after they too lost two games to the reds at at&t. ryan vogelsong will start for the giants. if they win today barry zito will pitch tomorrow. the giants have to win like the as three games in cincinnati to advance to the nlcs. i think the giants won like the last 12 that barry zito pitched. they can get there.
6:21. a true race to the altar. the unconventional wedding ceremony for two marathon runners. >> plus dramatic video out of belgium. a famous soccer player slams full speed into a store. what he had to say after the crash. ,, [ laughter ] [ girl ] wow. you guys have it easy.

where a soccer player crashd his hi doppler radar picking up showers in the north bay. will the rest of the bay area see rain, too? we'll talk about that coming up. >> and as you can see, the metering lights are on now at the bay bridge. starting to get busy in the middle camera. also we're also seeing an unusual amount of brake lights on 101 right near sfo. we'll explain why coming up in just a moment. in the meantime check out this video from belgium where a soccer player crashed his porsche into this building for
a second time. surveillance video captured the luxury car plowing into a convenience store on sunday morning. only one person had minor injuries. hard to believe. 25-year-old jonathan laguerre tested just above the legal limit. in 2009 he ran his bmw into a house. it's a habit apparently. >> i guess so. here we go. a marathon in portland involved 13,000 runners but it was also where the starting line where bride and groom took their vows. katie holmes and eric johansson said their marriage vows at mile 20 where they reconnected five years ago after a short post ceremony celebration the couple went ahead and ran out the final six miles of the race. >> then they collapsed. >> yeah, no kidding. >> just kidding. play of the day creative base running in last night's orioles yankees game. 1st inning cano with a double. ichiro suzuki coming home. will he get in there? he misses that one. misses another one.
gets the hand in there. he is safe. play of the day. but the orioles won the game 3- 2. look at that. boom got him there, no, little tap dance, gets the right hand down. that is nice. 6:26. coming up, do or die play-off game for the as. so why won't the team's owner remove the outfield tarp to free up more seats? >> a lot of people asking that question. plus he is in a pennsylvania courtroom right now. how long convicted child molester jerry sandusky could spend behind bars. >> and president obama raised millions of dollars in campaign cash in his last visit here to the bay area. but now he is shifting gears. we'll tell you where he is going next and why some say it's crucial to his re- election. ,,,,

states. he says it's time to get, quote, almost obsessive about his re-election. >> so i need you in this election. the next 29 days. we cannot afford to be complacent. >> now, this was a the president's sixth visit to the bay area. in a few hours he will go to ohio where he will cross trails with governor romney. ohio is a key battleground state one many believe could make or break the victory for the candidate. the race for the white house couldn't be tighter. so they will be eyeing the 18 electoral votes for the state. cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> a big bounce for mitt romney after last week's presidential debate. a pew research survey three weeks ago gave president obama an 8-point lead among likely voters. now romney has taken a 4-point lead in an updated survey.
as campaign 2012 heats up, holding a series of presidential forums online the candidates answering our questions today's topic the role of government big versus small. time now 6:32. two men shot to death as they drove through west oakland. this morning, investigators are looking for their killer. police say shots were fired at the intersection of filbert and 10 inn before 10:00 last night. the two victims were found dead inside the car a block away near 12th street. so far no suspects have been arrested. hundreds of people turned out in hercules to remember a retired schoolteacher murdered in her home. mourners marched behind the husband and children of susie ko last night as they walked to a vigil. her body was found on friday. her husband called the neighborcheck on her after she didn't pick him up at the airport. police say she had been stabbed and suffered blunt-force trauma to the head. >> i was just so devastated.
i couldn't believe it -- i couldn't believe it was really happening. but, of course, it did. >> last homicide we had here was 2010. we have only had 5 homicides in the last 11 years. >> the fbi is assisting in the case because police in hercules do not have all the necessary resources. authorities are hoping to find susie ko's 2011 blue subaru outback with an idaho license plate. a decision likely this afternoon on the fate of mirkarimi the suspended san francisco sheriff. the board of supervisors is vote on the ground-to remove him from office today. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington is in san francisco with more on what's at stake. big decision. >> reporter: mirkarimi has been fighting to keep his job. mayor ed lee wants him out. today the board of supervisors will meet and nine votes are needed to permanently oust the sheriff. with me now i have melissa griffin an attorney and columnist with the "san francisco examiner." talk about today. will there be a vote and what do you expect will happen inside city hall? >> there's going to be a rally at noon for ross supporters to
get them together so they can go in for public comment. i don't think people realize this is going to be a very, very long meeting today. we saw ethics commission hearings going on for hours. today both sides both domestic violence prevention advocates and also supporters of ross mirkarimi are going to get all their supporters together to come down here and talk to public comment. >> what do you think will happen? do you think the sheriff will keep his job or not? >> reporter: i think that you can never go wrong if you assume that politicians are going to do what's best for themselves and to that end polls show overwhelmingly that people want ross mirkarimi gone and they are going to base their votes for supervisor somewhat on what this decision is. there is no escaping the fact that most our supervisors and i think nine of them are going to vote to remove him. >> reporter: how important is this vote? >> two things. this removal process was one that's been endorsed by voters
in 1996 in our city charter for many years. this has been an excruciating process. they said oh, my goodness if he can do it to you, he can do to me. this looks frightening to anyone in the future who might want to go down this road so i don't think necessarily it is going to blow up our representative democracy in the city. >> reporter: thank you so much for joining us this morning. and again, that all happens at 2:00. but we might not know the decision of a vote until late tonight. at city hall, elissa harrington, cbs 5. >> thank you. it's 6:35 right now. i did not bring a raincoat or umbrella. >> you were not listening yesterday. >> i guess i wasn't. >> the man, the weather wizard, was talking about a little bit of rain today. >> just a slight chance of showers. we are seeing some of that right now actually in parts of the north bay. high-def doppler radar picking up on some of that as this system is slowly working toward the coastline falling apart somewhat. remember the core of the low likely to stay off the coast.
it will approach the coast and look impressive and fall apart. a slight chance of showers toward the coast. not only today but looks like into tomorrow. you can see clouds broken over the bay temperatures not too bad most areas in the 50s although 49 in san jose, 57 in san francisco. by the afternoon partly cloudy skies, temperatures cooler. numbers usually near 80 degrees in the afternoon at this time of year. today, a good six to nine degrees below average at about 71 degrees in san jose. about 73 in livermore and about 64 degrees in san francisco. and a slight chance of showers near the coastline. we'll have more on that in the weather coming up. right now let's check on the roads with elizabeth. >> thanks, lawrence. we just got off the phone with caltrans apparent lane still blocked on northbound 101 near sfo. this is some of late-running roadwork. they have been doing overnight paving near the airport and as you can see, because of those lane closures it's starting to stack up. so our delays are growing, 11 miles per hour, one of our live
drive time sensors. so you may want to consider 280 as an alternate until they pick it up and we'll let you know as soon as they do. in the meantime, towards the east bay, an oakland as game later on this evening could affect the evening commute home 6:05 game time. right now good to go between hayward and downtown oakland. yeah, it's a nice drive across that stretch. kind of a similar story down the eastshore freeway. it's getting busy through berkeley. this is one of our live cameras near ashby. 20 minutes from the carquinez bridge to the maze westbound. traffic and weather together every 10 minutes. back to you. >> thank you. sentencing proceedings are under way in pennsylvania for convicted sex offender jerry sandusky. we have some video of the former penn state football coach arriving just about 30 minutes ago to court. he was found guilty of 45 counts of child sexual abuse back in june. by law, those counts would add up to a minimum of 220 years in prison.
in an audio statement he says he is innocent and vows to keep on fighting. >> they can take away my life. they can make me as a monster, treat me as a monster but they can't take away my heart. >> sandusky also blames his arrest and conviction on a conspiracy that was crafted by accusers, investigators and the media. relatives of the former coach are expected to submit letters of support while at least two of the victims will address sandusky today directly. some other bay area headlines on this tuesday the teenager suspected of stealing a lamborghini belonging to a celebrity chef due in court this morning. police say this 18-year-old max wade stole the car from a san francisco dealership back in march of 2011. he is also facing attempted murder charges for allegedly shooting at passengers inside a truck this past april in marin county. oakland may soon get more red light cameras. there are currently 13 at 11
intersections. today a city council committee will consider increasing them to 30 bringing in up to $40,000 a month in net revenue. the as have announced the tarps that cover most of the coliseum upper deck that third deck will remain in place during the american league division series. it's unclear if that will change should the team advance to the championship series or the world series. a sellout crowd of 36,000 fans is expected tonight against the tigers. if they remove the tarp another 10,000 fans could watch at the stadium. it's a head shaker but it will stay on at least for the series. new this morning, a scientist with the cal connection shares the nobel prize for physics. american david wineland got his undergrad degree at uc-berkeley in 1965. wineland and frenchman serge haroche won the physics prize for inventing and developing methods for observing tiny quantum particles without
destroying them. they are both 68. 6:40. the hype is growing. will apple launch its much rumored ipad mini this month? our cnet expert weighs in next. >> a dusty discovery is priceless. what was found hidden in storage containsers at uc- berkeley. and the market just opened up about 10 minutes ago. let's check the early numbers. not too good. coming up we'll get an update from kcbs moneywatch reporter jason brooks. measures... measure up. money to our schools. "misleading." out here. it. but there's hope. straight to our schools... keeps it there. politicians. yes on thirty-eight.
of the ipad mini this month. experts are already predictg the buzz keeps growing about the possible unveiling of the ipad mini this month. experts are already predicting the small tablet will be a big seller. here to break down some of the
rumored features is cnet's representative. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> just when we thought all the apple buzz was over with the iphone 5, here comes the ipad mini. we don't know whether that's what it will be called but that's what we're calling it. we think it will be a 7" tablet. so apple has never hit this category before. we have only seen the 10" ipad. we think it will have a 7" display, front and back facing cameras for photos. white and black models like the iphone 5. a lining connector the smaller port that allows apple to put more parts in a smaller model and ipad 2 technology not the latest ipad. so it won't be apple's most premium product but will do that to keep prices down. >> why is apple doing this?
they have the iphone, ipad, ipod, why an ipad mini? >> that's a great question. i think it's most likely because, well, amazon has the kindle fire and the hd. going the is out with its nexus 7. so apple is seeing this is a huge market. we're now hearing that they might have ordered up to 10 million units. if that's the case this will be big for apple. >> how soon could we see them on shelves? >> we expect invitations for the event today or tomorrow and then an announcement to happen next week and hopefully, it will hit the shelves on november 2. >> in time for the holidays. >> of course. >> there you go. >> the cost. >> that's a great question. so if we look at the current line-up of apple products we have the latest ipad for $499. ipad 2 for $399. and the ipod touch is $299. so where does that leave the
ipad mini? it's definitely not going to be $199. so most likely somewhere and $349. a premium. >> somewhere in between the ipod and ipad 2. >> yes. >> thanks for breaking it down. remember, you can find more tech watch segments on >> i want one.

down. we had a report yesterday that its growth is expected to slow from 8.2 to 7.7%. of course, the u.s. not doing much to help. we saw our gdp only grow at a rate of 1.3% in the 2nd quarter. chipmaker intel says it's going to lay off a small percentage of the workers in its mcafee division. there are 7100 workers there. intel bought the antivirus company two years ago for $7.6 billion. wall street starting off lower. we kick off the corporate earnings season alumina maker alcoa reports after the closing bell. dow down 10, nasdaq down 11, s&p down 1. back to you. >> thank you, jason brooks with kcbs and 6:47. let's check the weather. >> do we have to? >> we do. >> it's going to rain. >> we do. >> it's getting really interesting out there right now. we may have already seen showers in parts of the north bay already and the core of the low is spinning off the coastline and could sends a few
more showers our way. take a look at the doppler radar. very interesting haven't been able to see this for quite some time. but the core of the low bringing some showers but they are beginning to fall apart approaching the coastline. still there is a slight chance we could pick up scattered showers coastside on and off and even into tomorrow as the low slowly works its way on through leaving a few clouds in the skies this afternoon and some cool-to-mild temperatures outside and that slight chance of showers continuing out towards the coastline. that low is going to remain off the coast. it will slide southward throughout the day today and tomorrow finally moving onshore into southern california. but it slowly moves on by keeping things unsettled for the next couple of days. delays at sfo on arriving flights by 70 minutes. around the country mostly cloudy skies and houston 81 degrees there, showers into chicago and new york, could cause some delays if you're headed in that direction. around the bay today partly cloudy skies, 71 degrees in san jose, 70 in sunnyvale approaching the coastline. chance of showers on the
